[quote author=Igboid post=54530542]Now I find this Ututu story interesting because of many reasons.

1. The Isu neighbors of Ututu, who Ututu themselves know not how they came to be in their present location as Ututu neighbors, which to me points out to a possible fact that Isu themselves were already at that extreme eastern end of Igboland before the Ihechiowa and Arochukwu people came to the area.

Unraveling who these Isu people who keeps popping up in many parts of Igboland are, is key to piecing together the missing puzzle of Igbo history.
Is it possible that there was an once unaccounted, undocumented and lost to memory Isu civilization in the ancient Igboland that these Isu people were all part of, before it fell.

2. Who are these Efik people that Ututu people gave lands and accommodated, I'm talking about the Enyong, Ito, Idere people?
Are they still part of Abia state today, or did they finally manage to break free of Ututu people and rejoin other Efiks in Cross River state?

The story we had been fed so far was that Igbos migrated from North and encroached into Efik/Ibibio lands in the Extreme Eastern part of Igboland. But from this Ututu perspective, it would appear that it was rather the Efik/Ibibios that were pushing westwards towards Eastern Igbo territories.

The three communities you mentioned. Enyong idere ito are now part of odukpani l.g.a in cross River. Part of injustice done to ututu people
